What is Duane Syndrome?
Duane syndrome is a rare congenital abnormality of nerve supply to eye muscles due to absence of the 6th nerve, which supplies some eye movement muscles. Vision remains normal. Patients are unable to move the eye horizontally resulting in a variable squint. There is no cure, but the severity of squint may be reduced by surgery.
